Will this range extender be able to reach where my current router can't?
BT's Dual-Band Wi-Fi Extender 610 allows you to extend the range of your wireless broadband, meaning dead zones are a thing of the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install - very simple "plug and play" plus one press of a button. Still early days, but no issues. Much better than BT 500 version I previously used which would lose connection often requiring a power down and power up to resolve.

Can the Ethernet port be used to extended the signal using a hard wired cat5 connection? The room where I want wifi is out of range of router (distance and brick walls) so I have Installed a cable from one side of my house to the other.

Asked by: Sev70
No, I am sorry but this will not be suitable. We would recommend the item linked below though as this would be ideal, and would just create a new wireless network using the wire you have run:

We have a flat in Prague, and we use a neighbour's secure wi-fi. However, whilst the signal is strong in half of the flat, the area furthest away has a very weak signal. What can I use to boost the signal in the flat? And would it be compatible in Prague?

Asked by: Peter
On the assumption that you are using the neighbours Wi-Fi with their permission then you could just use a Wi-Fi signal booster. Ideally you should source a product in the country you intend to use it as it will be fitted with the correct kind of plug fitting for that location.

It says supplied with Ethernet cable. What is that for? As I understood this unit plugs in to wall socket some room/s away?

Asked by: Jhc1
The unit is fitted with an Ethernet port, to allow the connection of devices without wireless capability and allowing them to use this plug as a wireless access point.

I'm using a communal signal on a caravan site and get a poor signal (2 bars on the wi-fi indicator on my iPhone). Would the extender give me a better, stronger signal, albeit slower speed?

Asked by: Jimmy
Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee a better connection while using this item. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thanks for your answer re the NAS. Does that connection need to be wired or can it be over the wifi signal between the router and the extender?

Can I plug a NAS into the ethernet port and have access to it via the extender's wifi?

Asked by: bill001
It would need a connection to a router to be given an IP address etc.
